Well, that is what Giggle Translate made out if this thread's name: http://dat.2chan.net/r/res/534828.htm
Item, there is indeed a flower festival in Hiroshima at this time (3rd-5th of May) beginning with a flower parade.
Item, according to this -- http://www.vehicle.city.hiroshima.jp/VEHICLE_HP/Contents/01_home/0104_English/02_hiroden/750&800.html -- two of twenty-two streetcars bought from Osaka were rebuilt as flatcars.
Ergo, it looks like GT hit the nail on the head.

Hey /rail/. So I got this dinner-table sized train table, all wired up and good to go, I haven't mounted it to anything or test ran it yet, which is why I'm here. It's powered by a tyco rc transformer, and I would like to know if different brands, such as Bachmann (I have two engines) or Rivarossi will work on such track. (I'm assuming it is tyco track as well.)

Alrighty-roo, 1channers. I'll tell you what I've got in plan, and hopefully, you guys can give me some pointers.
I was recently reading up on some interviews with some of the dudes who made Thomas the tank engine, and it really fascinated me as to how they were able to pull off what they could with such a tight budget (specifically the first two seasons). And then, I remembered that Gauge 1 is very, very, very close to G scale (in terms of track), and then I thought to myself "Yo! If I have a good enough G scale layout, maybe I can make a series like that!" And lo and behold, that's what I'm trying to accomplish.
Firstly, let's talk about my G scale stock and what I need. The only G-scale item I have is an LGB boxcar (pic related), and that's about it. I need a bunch of track, some more cars (either freight cars or some small passenger cars) and an engine or two. I've been eyeing the Piko BR80 ore starter set, as not only that will give me a good tank engine and a few cars, but also some track and a power source. I still need another engine for the secondary character (maybe a G-scale german based tender engine?)
As far as where I'm planning on filming this, my family is planning on moving, so I've been thinking about setting up a walk-around layout in either the garage or one of the spare bedrooms of the house. I still have yet to think of a track plan, but so far, I've been thinking about combining Tidmouth Sheds with a generic branchline station, or something along the lines of that.
